Kybella exclusively addresses a double chin, or moderate to severe submental fat below the chin. Patients who are unhappy with their profile because of skin under the chin that has fatty deposits that leave them looking older or heavier can get results with this groundbreaking treatment.

The results of Kybella treatments under the chin are so spectacular that Allure Magazine gave Kybella their 2015 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award. Kybella destroys fat cells in the treatment areas under the chin without surgery or liposuction.

How Kybella Works

Kybella contains deoxycholic acid which is naturally occurring in the body (Kybella contains a synthesized version). This substance helps break down and absorb dietary fat, but when it is injected into submental fat it works to destroy fat cells.

As a result, most patients notice a remarkable reduction in a double chin. The really good news is that destroyed fat cells do not grow back – they are gone for good. After a complete course of therapy, which may take up to six sessions, the need for further treatment is not anticipated.

What is the Kybella Treatment Like?

Only a healthcare specialist specifically trained in Kybella administration is qualified to deliver this treatment. The treatment is divided into separate sessions, each at least a month apart. During a treatment, you will get multiple small injections with a very thin needle into the fatty area beneath your chin. This takes about 20 minutes. How many injections you receive depends upon the quantity of fat present, and your desired results.

The number of sessions is capped at six, although only 59% of the patients in clinical studies required that many. While you may experience some soreness, you can resume all of your normal activities right away.

What Happens After Treatment?

No downtime is required. Kybella treatments may result in minor side effects such as swelling, pain, or numbness in the treated area. There are some (very rare) other side effects. We ensure our patients are fully informed before undergoing any treatment.

When undergoing Kybella therapy, recovery becomes successively easier with each treatment. After each set of injections, the area treated gradually reduces in volume. The area beneath your chin will slim and become more defined and youthful as the product gets to work on fat cells – which are naturally shed by the body.

Who is a Good Candidate?

It is important to keep in mind that Kybella only treats fat under the chin. A double chin may have other causes having to do with bone, skin, muscle or the endocrine system in the jaw or neck. Kybella does not tighten skin and it doesn’t lift tissue or muscle, nor relax wrinkles.

You may be a candidate for Kybella if:

  • You have an accumulation of neck fat and would like to avoid liposuction or another surgery.
  • You are realistic about results and and know that the full Kybella benefits may take a number of monthly treatments to realize.
  • A double chin may not be from accumulated fat but from bone, skin, muscle or gland issues. Dr. Beck will establish with you what procedure will best deliver the results you desire.
